I have at my parents' house a Windows 7 machine, with 2 users - "admin" which only I have the password to, and "HomeUser" which doesn't have a password, and which my parents use to log into Windows.
There's one folder, with several files in it, that my mom needs for only her to get access (keep random people away...). I've created a third user "Mom" for her, and put a password that only she and I know (I don't want to give her my admin password). Then on the "secret" folder, I removed "Authenticated Users" and "HomeUser", and added "Mom" with read\write\modify permissions (everything except for Full Control).
What I want to happen is that whenever someone clicks the folder, they will be prompted for her password. However, what actually happens is that when the folder is clicked, the prompt comes up only for the "admin" password (I guess it only looks for users in the Administrators local group). When I add "Mom" to Administrators group (not the best idea but still), I do get prompted for either "admin" or "Mom" password, but when I give the "Mom" password - the folder becomes accessible PERMANENTLY to "HomeUser" (which is the logged-on user).
My desired outcome is that EVERY TIME someone clicks the folder they will be prompted for "Mom"'s password.
I'm running a Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1.
